NEW SAFETY STEPS INITIATED

Boeing resumes 737 MAX production

RENTON, Washington, May 28, 2020

Boeing said it has resumed production of the 737 MAX at the company’s Renton factory in the US state of Washington, with implementation of more than a dozen initiatives focused on enhancing workplace safety and product quality.
 
Boeing said it has resumed production of the 737 MAX at the company’s Renton factory in the US state of Washington. The 737 programme began building airplanes at a low rate as it implements more than a dozen initiatives focused on enhancing workplace safety and product quality.
 
“We’ve been on a continuous journey to evolve our production system and make it even stronger,” said Walt Odisho, vice president and general manager of the 737 programme. “These initiatives are the next step in creating the optimal build environment for the 737 MAX.”
 
During the temporary suspension of production that began in January, mechanics and engineers collaborated to refine and standardize work packages in each position of the factory. New kitting processes will also ensure that employees have everything they need at their fingertips to build the airplane.
 
“The steps we’ve taken in the factory will help drive our goal of 100 percent quality for our customers while supporting our ongoing commitment to workplace safety,” said Scott Stocker, vice president of 737 Manufacturing. – TradeArabia News Service
